Ovako 821L is a through hardening bearing steel intended for rolling contact and other high fatigued applications. In the hardened condition the high hardness, high strength and high cleanliness provides the steel with the right properties to withstand high cycle, high stress fatigue. Ovako 821L is mainly used for small and medium sized bearing components. It is also regularly used for other machine components that require high tensile strength and high hardness.
BQ-steel® is a bearing quality clean steel optimized for fatigue strength and is also ideal for new design solutions outside the bearing industry.
